OL Family Day
Saturday 11th September 2010
After a very wet start – good for the rugby – the clouds lifted and we enjoyed a very warm and sunny afternoon. We were delighted to welcome back so many OL Leysians returning to their old stomping ground for an excellent afternoon of sport and family entertainment.
There were some magnificent sporting displays both on the field and on the astro. The 1st XV comprehensively beating Austin Jessop’s XV 60-0, the OL under 23’s versus the over 23’s was a much more even contest, scores being level at 17-17. On the astro the OL girls shone over the 1st team, winning 4-1.
While the sport was taking place the tea tent was doing a brisk business while the younger children were being entertained by Mr Rainbow and the face painter. As always at the end of the afternoon the beer tent became the focus for all the thirsty sportsmen and women. The afternoon ended with the Headmaster presenting the trophies to the winning captains.
